RIFFLING HITCH FISHING – HITCHING FOR SALMON
Words: Valgerdur Arnadottir
The riffling hitch was originally designed for anglers in search for the Atlantic salmon. The method is used on a small scale on salmon rivers around Europe but compared to its success it should be used much more than it actually is today. It is one of the best methods to catch salmon and every angler intensively fishing for salmon should have a box of hitch flies in different sizes ready on every fishing trip.
AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE
Words: Toni Corenius
We all know that whatever sports we do, there is a huge difference if we can do it the way we can enjoy it and feel comfortable while doing it. The right clothing for right conditions can be sometimes tricky to pick, sometimes even impossible. There are some basic rules people should remember or know, so they can focus on fishing and feeling good while doing it.
There are people that love to put their butts in harm’s way and maximize the uncomfortable feeling for some reason. Then there are people that just love to be right about everything they do, no matter what you tell them. They keep on doing stuff that worked well 30 years ago, because there were no alternative options. Times change and so do options to choose right products for you and me.

35 YEARS OF SALMON AND SEA TROUT DREAMS

A long time ago the Netherlands was a rich salmon and sea trout country, but that’s no longer the case. Nico de Boer is Dutch and could only dream of these silvers.

In one of his lectures for fly fishing clubs, Nico was asked to tell a few anecdotes from his wide experience for the audience and for a story for Chasing Silver Magazine.
